changed the battery and now vdc fault code C1276
Hi guys i changed the battery on my 156 jtd and now have a fault flashing up vdc system failure.
I have doubled check and the new battery is fully charged and the terminals are on nice and tight.
not a problem i thought just clear the code and sorted, hooked up to multiecuscan read the code C1276, cleared it and turned her off, back on code appears again. tried it a few times but the vdc lights keep flashing up...hayho!
So i read read he code again and it means this.................
Main Relay or the associated circuitry has a defect. This relay is usually part of the hydraulic assembly and supplies the power to the solenoid valves and acts as a safety device. Check:
- permanent (+ 30) and Key-On power supplies and ground circuits for opens, shorts or weak connections
- the relay coils and the relay for proper functioning.
The fault is present now. Take appropriate action to fix this sensor fault. Dashboard warning light was activated for this fault.
any advice guys not sure what i should check next.
